Timeline: 3 days
Our team at Monk’s was called in by these Basking Ridge, NJ 07928 homeowners to improve the exterior of their home. The home’s soffits and fascia had suffered severe water damage and were thoroughly rotted. Not only did our team replace the rotted soffits and fascia with azek, a moisture resistant substance, but they also installed new, larger gutters, to help prevent further water damage to the home. All of these important improvements were accomplished in only three days!
Before our team at Monk’s arrived this Basking Ridge, NJ 07920 home was equipped with 5 inch gutters. After careful scrutiny our team suggested that the homeowners upgrade to 6 inch gutters; the idea being that the 6 inch gutters would help in preventing further water damage to the home’s exterior.
While the gutters were removed from the home our team took advantage of the exposure and completely ripped out the rotting soffits and replaced them with new azek soffits. The existing, water damaged soffits were made of plywood and pine. Replacing the decaying soffits with azek is a great choice, and very much a fix and forget project. With the new azek structure and the larger, more efficient gutters, these soffits will last a lifetime!
Each piece had to be carefully hand cut to fit the specific home.
The home’s fascia had also suffered severe water damage and had to be removed from the home.
Just as with the soffits, our team was able to replace the fascia with azek. After all of the new carpentry was completed brand new 6 inch gutters with screens and down spouts were installed on the Basking Ridge home. Generally screens are not installed with 5 inch gutters because the gutters are too small and the gutters end up getting clogged more often. However, for 6 inch gutters screens add to the efficiency of the gutters.
Another job well done by Monk’s!
